Cookies, Coming Out, and Compliments

Free Cookies, learning about LGBTQ+ community, and receiving compliments… what’s better than that? Nothing! It was such a fun event! Lots of cookie decorating. The “Coming Out” Star activity was a big eye opener to what the LGBTQ+ community may go through when they are coming out to their friends, family, community, and job and how it can also effect their dreams. It was heart breaking to see how several people lost their family and friends. Though it was an emotional activity, we ending on a positive note with complimentary compliments. Everyone wrote compliments around you and it is amazing on all the positive things people say about you.

Truths about Stereotypes

This event was a great time to sit and discuss the Stereotypes that we hear commonly. We had Dr. King, Adam Iserman, and Becky Hagle come and facilitate the discussion. We were given that chance to discuss stereotypes involving race and people from different parts of the country. We were able to learn the truth behind them and how some of them could have been created. Thanks to all who came out and enjoyed Jimmy John’s and talk!

Sex in the Dark

When people are uncomfortable with talking about sexuality, this event allowed open communication between the opposite sex. It was a great opportunity to talk about sexuality and ask questions that most people don’t want to ask! Thanks to all who came out and supported Diversity week!
